about that, to suggest that the president of the united states would then come out and try to use this in some domestic political sense and was somehow favoring -- i'm not sure of the logic, he favored the 500,000 dead in haiti over the one bomber injured in detroit in some way. i'm not following it. >> it makes no sense. and, you know, aren't we all appalled that our president would mount a rescue effort to try to save thousands, tens of thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of people who are either dying right now or who will die in the next few days if they don't get help? you know, shame on the president for trying to alleviate that suffering and prevent those deaths. it's just a ridiculous thing to say. and i hope even his audience of dittoheads realizes that. >> you are dittoing naked, mad, insanity, and racism. eugene robinson, pulitzer prize-winning columnist of "the washington post," and also of msnbc, always a relief to talk to you under these circumstances. >> it's good to talk to you, except under bad circumstances. >> thank you, sir. that's "countdown." now to contin
back to them, plus interest. and one caller stated earlier, the banking system of the united states should be a national or federalized system where the people, through government, issues credit to whoever needs it. that way the money stays within the system instead of going through the pockets of private bankers. so it's really a moot point whether he should be replaced or not. it's who's going run the mafia. it doesn't matter. it's still the mafia that's sucking the wealth out of our nation. host: off twitter, someone who identifies himself as c.p., says bernanke is just being scapegoated for congress' mistakes, washington politics as usual, all form and no substance. largo, florida, independent line. frank, go ahead. caller: good morning. i'll have to second the previous caller's assertions there. hl-1207 has 300 sponsors in the house, and s-604, bills to audit the fed, has over 30 cosponsors in the senate. and we need to call our senators to get this audit of the federal reserve. after that, it will be very easy to establish a grand jury, which will have subpoena power and indic

of this country that elected me, an african-american as the 44th president of the united states of america. rev. wheeler mentioned the inauguration. on the heels of that victory over one year ago, some suggested that somehow we had entered into a post-racial america. all those problems would be solved. there are those who argued that because i had spoke of a need for unity in this country that our nation was somehow entering into a period of post- partisanship. that did not work out so well. there was a hope shared by many that life would be better from the moment that i swore that oath. of course, as we meet here today, one year later, we know the promise of that moment has not yet been fully fulfilled. because of an era of greed and irresponsibility that sowed the seeds of its own demise, because of persistent economic troubles unaddressed through the generations, because of the banking crisis that has brought the financial system to the brink of catastrophe, we are being tested in our own lives and as a nation as you have been tested before. unemployment is at its highest level in more than
's interesting. the bank of the united states is in some ways not the federal reserve. they don't have a currency but they're more powerful than the federal reserve today. it was a private in part privately owned stock was quite valuable. basically they controlled the money supply because they lend money to the state banks which were issued a lot of currency and the interesting thing is the bank of the united states was hiring senators, congressmen, senators to be there to represent and give speeches on their behalf. >> host: heaven forbid. >> guest: it is actually sitting members of congress it is the power of the bank had although i think a lot of economists think the bank did a good job because of its chairman nicholas biddle, the fellow from philadelphia who did a very good job but jackson hated elite is and what he saw as the corruption of the bank. >> host: and then congress passed a small probing and feed it -- vetoed it. >> guest: it's very interesting. until jackson, president hadn't vetoed many bills but they thought he could only use it for on a constitutional laws of the president of
an executive order granting interpol and certain rights and immunities here in the united states. some are wondering if that has caused an opening for interpol to have extraordinary police powers in the united states. a requested it? -- who requested it? >> the executive order updated interpol's status based on the fact that within the fast five years -- past five years they have opened an office to assist in the type of information sharing between governments that we all know that is so important. all that does is simply bring them and given the same privileges and responsibilities that many other international organizations have in this country like the iea, imf, the red cross. >> it does not give them police powers? >> absolutely not. >> can you tell me whether any questions that took place here at the white house questions whether or not he would be tried as an enemy combatant? >> whether the conversations took place here at the white house? >> whether the 23-year-old should be tried as an enemy combatant. >> i would say a lot of subjects were covered in the situation room in terms
. and they are a critical source of support for north korean defectors in south iraq and in the united states. the roughly 100 north koreans in the united states are receiving help from corian and non-corian christian churches. -- korean and non-korean christian churches. i think that christians play an important role. >> we will try to squeeze in a few more questions. >> peter, thank you for your kind words. you mentioned the exchange-rate issue in german unification. any economist would say that the exchange rate policy that was settled upon by the german government hyde -- made no rational sense whatsoever, but there were powerful political crash -- but pressures of work -- powerful political pressures at work. what do you see the pressures of work on that issue when it comes time for the koreas to unify? who you think will be the contending forces? -- who do you think will be the contending forces? >> that is another really good question that i have not really started to consider. i will just give you a top of the head answer. given that trade unions are really only present at the top table, i think
association of police chiefs. we represent law enforcement throughout the united states. this is a critical issue, no matter what size your agency is. if you are a large agency like new york or if you are a one-man police department, the ability to share information and communicate that information in a timely fashion is critical to public safety. we support wholly the efforts to remove the d-block from the auction and to provide that for public safety. what we need to see is leadership, here in washington. you have heard or you will hear from the public safety people who say how important this is that we are able to communicate and not just law enforcement to law enforcement but law enforcement talking to fire services to emergency services people. everyone must be able to communicate. they must be able to talk and send data between each other and it's very important that the people in washington, our leaders and elected officials take a leadership position and provide us with the tools so we can make our communities at home safe. >> thank you, chief lane. i introduce chief bob hendricks.
and in the south american countries compared to what you paid in the united states? also, canada and mexico. i understand canadian wages are much higher. guest: i would really need to bring the manufacturing teams to talk about the wage structure. they are probably the right expert on the topic. in general, we are focused on building great cars, trucks, and crossovers. we have a number of examples where we are building some small cars in the u.s. is clearly a competitive environment out there. we are comparing the wage structure. i would say the manufacturing side would be the best to answer the question. host: the general manager for chevrolet. thank you. more guests coming from the washington auto show. we will speak to representatives of florida and bmw. -- ford and bmw. mike from pennsylvania. no guest right now, but do you have a comment? caller: yes, i was a longtime fan of the pontiac division. i see the discontinued and that -- they discontinued that. that upsets me a little bit. how come they cannot focus more on environmentally-friendly vehicles? host: abilene, texas. lou on the repu
or asia to the united states, of course that should raise suspicions. but going after women with head scarves is ineffective. >> abernethy: so are you saying that you and other muslim leaders come down more on the side of individual freedom that you do on secuty? >> no, i think we have to have both. if you are going to stigmatize or isolate a population, that feeds into radicalization. part of the radicalization problem is when a community feels isolated, and when one person... and we're talking about now the concern over lone wolves or lone recruits, if that person feels desperate, depressed, then he becomes prey for extremist recruiters, and we should do anything and everything to help accelerate integration of muslims into american society. >> abernethy: after the christmas day near-disaster in the air near detroit, and some other recent events, too, do you sense a growing backlash against muslims in this country? >> there's a rise of the mob mentality. you read the comments on a number of stories, you get the emails, you get the phone calls. and i fee unfortunately, that the level
